The beauty of CC is that it isn't seen at all.
Personally, I find open carry awful on a practical level. When tensions rise, it makes a fellow feel like a target.
Beyond my personal sense, we can already see a change in police culture regarding carrying openly. How would one make the public more comfortable with OC without engaging in it? Demonstration that a firearm isn't itself a threat to anyone's safety seems a plausible method of education.
